Sabres Assign Ruhwedel To Rochester

News: Chad Ruhwedel was one of five players assigned to AHL Rochester on Monday to finish the season.
Analysis: The steady, two-way defenseman played just four games with the Sabres this season, but looked quite comfortable and finished with an assist and a plus-3 rating. Chad Ruhwedel returns to a depleted Rochester squad that has no hope of making the playoffs, but there's still plenty to build on with 34 points in 69 games with the Amerks so far. Ruhwedel has emerged as a capable top-four defenseman in the AHL, and will make a run for a roster spot with the Sabres next year.

Sabres Recall Ruhwedel

News: Chad Ruhwedel was recalled from AHL Rochester on Friday in light of Andre Benoit's upper-body injury, WGR 550 reports.
Analysis: This will be Chad Ruhwedel's second stint with the Sabres after he tallied 34 points in 69 games with AHL Rochester. The dependable two-way defenseman filled in seamlessly in his two previous games with the big club, recording an assist and finishing with a plus-2 rating. Ruhwedel will enter the lineup Friday against the Blue Jackets and figures to play in Saturday's finale against the Penguins as well with Benoit doubtful to be healthy by that time.

Demotion For Sabres' Ruhwedel Expected

News: Chad Ruhwedel will be reassigned back to AHL Rochester on Friday with Andrej Meszaros (hand) returning to the lineup, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Chad Ruhwedel was the No. 6 defenseman on the Sabres' depth chart and averaged less than 13 minutes of ice time in two games, though he was quite productive with an assist, three shots on goal, five hits, and two blocked shots. Zach Bogosian (lower body) is not expected to play Friday, but the Sabres are carrying enough defensemen to cover for his absence and would probably like Ruhwedel to play 20 minutes for AHL Rochester instead. Ruhwedel will make a run for a regular roster spot with the Sabres next season.

Sabres' Ruhwedel Picks Up Point In Season Debut

News: Chad Ruhwedel collected an assist and a plus-2 rating in his first game since being recalled in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: Making his 2014-15 NHL debut, Chad Ruhwedel's point was the second of his career through 29 contests. The 24-year-old was recalled from AHL Rochester earlier Monday with both Zach Bogosian and Andrej Meszaros nursing injuries, so his stay with the parent club will likely last as long as his fellow defensemen remained sidelined.

Sabres Recall Ruhwedel

News: The Sabres recalled Chad Ruhwedel on Monday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Chad Ruhwedel, who has one assist in 28 career NHL games to his credit, gets the call from the Sabres, with both Zach Bogosian and Andrej Meszaros dealing with injuries that will keep them out of Monday's game against the Caps.

Sabres Expected To Promote Ruhwedel

News: Chad Ruhwedel is expected to get a call from the Sabres with Andrej Meszaros (hand) hurt, reports Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald.
Analysis: The 24-year-old former UMass-Lowell standout has 31 points in 59 games with AHL Rochester, but has yet to dress for the Sabres this season. A dependable two-way player and one of the Amerks' best, Chad Ruhwedel will likely slot in on the third pairing if he plays. Though he has contributed offensively for the Amerks, don't expect him to do much of that with Buffalo, where he's expected to worry about playing solid defensive hockey first. In 28 career NHL games, he has one assist, so the upside for Ruhwedel is minimal, especially this season with the Sabres being the league's worst team. Ruhwedel's call-up comes with Mark Pysyk (heart) and Zach Bogosian (lower-body) considered day-to-day.

Sabres Send Ruhwedel To AHL

News: Chad Ruhwedel was one of 11 cuts the Sabres made on Friday.
Analysis: Chad Ruhwedel was in a training camp battle for a spot on the team's third pairing but ended up being among the Sabres' first cuts. A two-way defensemen who signed as an undrafted player out of UMass-Lowell, Ruhwedel appeared in 21 games for the Sabres and 47 games for Rochester. He was among the Amerks' top defenseman, notching 28 points during the season and five points in five games in the playoffs. The 24-year-old will be among the Sabres' first call-ups should the need arise.
